Ashrafi urges Ulema, Mashaikh to highlight Indian atrocities in IIOJK in Friday’s sermon

Islamabad, February 01 (KMS): Prime Minister’s Aide on Interfaith Harmony, Hafiz Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi Tuesday said Ulema and Mashaikh from all schools of thought would highlight the Kashmir dispute in Friday’s sermon across the country.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, he said they would bring in the notice of general public the inhuman and degrading treatment with Kashmiri brethren by Indian occupational forces in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) at the grassroots level.

Hafiz Tahir Ashrafi said on February 5, all religious and political leadership of the country would observe the day with national fervor to express solidarity with their Kashmiri brothers and sisters in IIOJK.

He said it is the united stance of all the people of the country that Kashmir is the jugular vein of Pakistan. He said on the issue of Kashmir, the government was raising its voice at every fora.

Citing the recent meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s foreign ministers which was having one-point agenda of Afghanistan, Hafiz Tahir Ashrafi said Prime Minister Imran Khan vehemently spoke on Kashmir and Palestine at this forum to bring the issues in the limelight of the Muslim Ummah’s leadership.

Pointing the deceptive practices of Israel in Palestine and India in IIOJK, he said India was following the footsteps of Israel as it was trying to grab the land of Palestinians and depriving the locals of their legal rights.

Hafiz Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi said the world should break the ice on the Kashmir dispute as the Kashmiri people are being killed mercilessly by the Indian occupational forces. He expressed the hope that the day was not far away when the people of Palestine and Kashmir would witness the dawn of independence.
